Bachelor in Kinesiology and Health science (Honours)Practicing Kinesiologist with BCAK Certified Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) Level 1
Please welcome Kinesiologist Jason Clare to our team of health care professionals! Jason completed his degree in Toronto at York University with a Bachelors in Kinesiology and Health Science (with Honours). Taking a huge interest in muscle physiology as his specialization, Jason has been a volunteer jumps coach for the track community in Nanaimo for many years. To that end, he hopes to apply the similarities of functional movement in sport to everyday life.
Jason has lived in Nanaimo his entire life. He began his athletic career in track and field at a very early age with the Nanaimo track and field club. However, being a young athlete in high level sport led to an influx of injuries and a lot of time working with many rehab specialists, which sparked his interest in the field of health care. While growing up, Jason played almost every sport under the sun, which led to him taking his love of sports to the track as a pole-vaulter. As a result, his highest level of sport was qualifying for multiple Provincial teams (2X national champion), being part of the Canadian National Team Pool and qualifying for two Canadian National teams. Moreover, Jason was on the York University Varsity track and field team throughout his university career.
Jason is currently booked to receive his FMS training certificate. He believes functional movement is a key element to a healthy, pain-free life, and is excited to share his knowledge of FMS, whether it be for rehabilitation, aches and pains, or to simply get a jump start on a healthy lifestyle. His focus is to generally teach stabilization of neutral and proper position of joints, and to then learn functional strength and mobility from this position. Jason will encourage and help anyone from all populations to use movement and exercise as a means to improve their own wellbeing.
